Region delay time.

If a delay value is specified, the region playback will be postponed for the specified time. If the region receives a note-off message before delay time, the region won’t play.

Sample playback and all envelope generators’ delay stage will start counting after region delay time - this is the core difference between this and ampeg_delay.

Examples #



Example uses: delaying some regions in a strum or a flam; delaying regions to emulate more distant microphone positions.

Practical Considerations #

In ARIA, if loop_mode is set to one_shot, the region will play regardless of whether a note-off message is received or not.
